Cards With my Silhouette SD and I Try ATCs...

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying your day off (if you have one) and remembering the people who fight for us!  If you still need some red white and blue decor, for today or July 4th, check out my How-To on easy pin wheels here. I think I am going to put my pin wheels in the ground next to a war memorial statue before the day is out...

Today I just wanted to share some cards and ATCs I have been working on.  With the cards, I have been testing out my Silhouette SD cutter, and using Make The Cut software and Lettering Delights SVG files...

A congratulations card for a friend who will be moving away for nursing school, the inside reads "Oh, the places you'll go..." this would also make a great graduation card.  The cute balloon is from Lettering Delights Balloon Craze set.

A just because card I made for my husband. The phrase is "You Octopi My Thoughts" with an adorable octopus cut out. Both the phrase and octopus are from Lettering Delights Something Fishy Set..  I added blue stickles to the lettering, and diamond stickles to the little spots on his head. I corner chopped the bottom and added the uneven blue circles to look like bubbles popping out of the card.

Now I have tried to make my first ever ATC, I still have a lot to learn about these but I am having fun creating on such a small area. It is actually more of a challenge, since every little space has to be useful, there is no room for "fluff stuff!!"

With both ATCs I used stamps and colored pencils. I am putting the first one in the daily scrapbook I am putting together for my mom (you can read more about that here)

Enjoy the holidays and be safe
